Magnus Carlsen Video: World Chess Championship 2013 Venue Chennai Visit

Posted by World Chess Championship 2013 News Blog Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Leading Indian chess videographer Vijay Kumar is known for his videos of world chess events, particularly every single one featuring World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand. Here is his video of World No. 1 Magnus Carlsen and his team's visit to inspect the venue of the upcoming World Title match in Chennai, India from November 6-26

They say you cannot go back from India without a lasting impression and without being treated as an honoured guest. Is India going to be lucky for Carlsen?

The welcome was traditional, the arrangements up to the mark and the excitement... well, watch it for yourself! And, do keep track of all the expressions on the chess prodigy's face.
